Hate Crime Hoax, Black Student Caught Painting N Word, Swastikas Targeting Himself

The desire to be included in the progressive victim culture strong and it led one college student to target himself in a hate crime.

A black college lacrosse player in Maryland was caught spray painting the N word and swastikas along with threats that targeted several black students, including himself, The Daily Mail reported.
A black college lacrosse player has been arrested in connection with two incidents of racist graffiti found in a dorm on the Goucher College campus in Maryland.

Fynn Ajani Arthur, a 21-year-old from Brunswick, Maine, was charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County.

Instead, any evidence that a crime was motivated by bias is directed to the state’s attorney’s office for consideration during prosecution.

Sentencing for crimes that were motivated by bias carry harsher penalties.

‘It’s become like common jargon to call it a hate crime,’ Peach said. ‘There’s no such law that says hate crime. It has to do with sentencing if hate is the motive.’

Officials said the college has reached out to the individuals targeted in the graffiti to offer support, yet many minority students have expressed ongoing concerns despite...
